CEO Jan-Pieter Klaver steps down; Saskia Rijtema appointed COO
Having been HMC’s CEO for 8 years and after working for more than 26 years for Heerema, Jan-Pieter Klaver has decided to step down as CEO of Heerema Marine Contractors, to take a well deserved break and to pursue other personal and business interests.
In consultation with the Board it has been concluded that the time between this decision and his actual departure should not be too long and therefore it has been agreed that he will leave the Company per June 1st 2017, which will allow for an adequate transfer of his responsibilities.
We want to express our gratitude for Jan-Pieter’s dedication and professionalism during many years and wish him all the best for both his private life as well as for furthering his professional career.
As per the same date Saskia Rijtema will join the Board as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Saskia will strengthen the Board by contributing a wealth of knowledge, important Heerema experience and team-spirit. We wish her, and the Board in this new composition, much success in tackling the challenges our industry and our Company are facing.
Pieter Heerema, Chairman of the Board
